Unaccompanied Minors Shelter “Anatoli”
Having operated for almost 1,5 year our shelters, “Irida” and “Estia”, that provide safe living and housing for unaccompanied minors, asylum seekers, aged 12 to 18 years old, Medical Intervention extends its action with the creation of shelter “Anatoli”, with hosting capacity for 40 minors.
Having as our supplies the valuable experience, the unimaginable concern and sense of responsibility for vulnerable cases as those of unaccompanied minors, we begin a new, demanding project in a busy neighborhood in Athens.
A 5-floor building that used to function as a nursing home has been renovated in order to host adolescents and cover their needs. Therefore, accommodation, supply of nutritious food, health services, educational support, psychosocial support, proper entertaining, athletic and creative activities are covered in “Anatoli”.
Our fully qualified personnel that consists of social workers, psychologists, child psychiatrist, lawyer, general servants, educational staff, cook, cleaning staff and administrative assistants, provides this essential and holistic support for minors. At the same time, personalized support, concerning health and legal support and personal development is provided, whilst special emphasis is placed on integration through registration at public schools and several educational and entertaining organizations.
Minors can find in “Anatoli” a home where they can feel secure and grounded in a context of a transitional and challenging stage in their lives.
